Main Street shut down for annual Orono Antique Street Festival


Published August 8, 2023 at 12:52 pm

If ancient and not-so ancient collectibles, furniture and vintage goodies are your thing downtown Orono is the place to be this weekend.

The little village in north Clarington, which has become a go-to spot for discerning antique and vintage shoppers, is hosting its annual Orono Antique Street Festival Saturday on Main Street between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., rain or shine.

Main Street will be closed to traffic for the 14th annual event, with residents and visitors treated to a unique selection of antiques, collectables, vintage finds, furniture, toys, books, jewellery, art, and much more.

Twenty-five-plus new and returning independent antique dealers will be displaying their wares on the street that day. As well, the local antique shops of Orono – including the Orono Antique Market and Main Thru Church Antique Mall – will be open for business with great in-store specials to celebrate the event. These two independent antique shops collectively represent approximately 11,000 sq. ft. of antique and vintage items and are host to 25-30 antique dealers year-round.
The festival is free and attendees can grab a bite to eat at one of Orono’s local restaurants or outdoor food venues and enjoy live entertainment as well.

Orono is located just off Hwy115, about halfway between Highway 401 and the eastern end of Highway 407.
